Attractive, sprawling, park-like campground (trees but no undergrowth between sites), very spacious grassy sites with gravel parking pads. CG was surprisingly quiet and about 1/2 empty on this weekend before Memorial Day. Rates will be going up this summer, after new state legislation was passed. About 1/2 the sites have electric hookups (20/30 amps); mix of shower houses w/ flush toilets and clean, well-vented pit toilets scattered around the CG. Small camp store in the park & camp hosts in residence; for other needs, the small town of Savanna is about 5 miles south. There's a boat launch & fishing area along the river, across the road from CG entrance. Hiking trails in the woods, some with overlooks along the Miss. River. We really enjoyed this park, and would happily camp here again, even at the new, higher rates (rumored to be $25 later this season). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground. We camped at site 196, which is a pull through site. The site is at the end of one of the roads, so it was very quiet. The campsites are wide and shady. The bathhouse was very nice and clean. There are easy to moderate hiking trails in the campground area. The more difficult trails are on the south side of the park. I would highly recommend this campground for couples and families. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Very spacious sites and very scenic. It's about 1/2 hour drive to Galena. Across the street from the campground there is a free boat launch, bait store and restaurant. There is also a small camp store on site. The hiking trails are wonderful. The campground is very large and usually has sites available for the summer weekends if you arrive on Friday evening. The grounds are very nice for biking and long walks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent State Park. Very clean and relatively quiet. Wide open spaces between sites and the grounds are well cared for. The other side of the state park has a bunch of great trails that my kids loved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice state park. Big shadey sites, with electric. Small concesion on site. Close to Galena. The only problem I saw was that on Memorial Day weekend the bathrooms were not kept clean. It was very crowded but every time I went into the bathrooms they were dirty. Besides that though the place is very well maintained with a very good ranger presence to keep the riff-raff out. Close to but not on the Mississippi river. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
